The most commonly used patient position is supine with the arm either on an arm table, or directly on the draped C-arm. This position can be used for the majority of pediatric fractures of the distal humerus, both supracondylar and articular.
Other positions can be used for specific fractures (eg, complex intraarticular fractures), or for personal preference.
Prone for medial approach
This approach provides good access to medial aspect of elbow (eg, medial epicondyle/condyle).
